A World Transformed: the Transcontinental Railroad and Utah, shares the story of Utah’s contribution to the completion of the transcontinental railroad and examines the railway’s transformational effects on Utah. A partnership between Utah State University’s Merrill-Cazier Library and the Utah State Division of History, A World Transformed will travel the state of Utah from January 2019 through March of 2020. The exhibition draws upon the many rich historical resources held by different institutions across not only Utah but the entire United States, including photographs, maps, art, and lithographs. A condensed version of the exhibit is available for booking through the Utah Division of Arts & Museum’s Traveling Exhibits Program. An extended digital version will be available through USU University Libraries.
